My friend Mike "Whisker Fish" Dollins sent this over the top press release promoting our show coming up on May 20.

The earth, moon and stars will be in total alignment on May 20th, to fulfill my personal Blues Pilgrimage to the land of my ancestors, just outside of West Memphis. On my son's birthday, the Little Rock Blues Entourage will join me along with my band of Big Blue Cats, and we will set up to perform on the soil in fertile delta cotton country where my daddy was born on Highway 49 decades ago. You only get one or two of these events in your lifetime where your Mojo is pulsating ready to burst full of mystical allure. Everyone in our blues world should take their guitar out of their case, and play a TBB shuffle (Twelve Bar Blues) at 3:00 PM USA Southland, Central Time. It could stun and shock the earth into world peace, who knows. We will open up with our TBB shuffle in the Delta Boogie Country, Jonesboro, Arkansas beside the White River as it flows down the delta along Highway 49 and joins the Mississippi River and Arkansas River near blues landmark Helena, Arkansas. This is blues motherland, and a homecoming for me. www.deltaboogie.com and www.mikedollins.biz for details.

I got such a kick out of it I was inspired to write this song.

Lyrics:

Blues For Peace
copyright 2007 by Larry Heyl

We're jammin the blues to put an end to war
We're jammin the blues to put an end to war
We're gonna take your war and kick it right out the door.

We'll play the twelve bar boogie to bring peace to the earth
We'll play the twelve bar boogie to bring peace to the earth
You know something's happenin' here for what it's worth

We're singing Blues for Peace (Blues for Peace)
Singing Blues for Peace (Blues for Peace)
I said Blues for Peace (Blues for Peace)
Singing Blues for Peace (Blues for Peace)
It's such good news we're gonna put it in a press release.
